Selected quotes on photobooks shared by David Chickey, Radius Books during the masterclass workshop with Alex & Rebecca Norris Webb in Singapore.
“The single most important characteristic of photography now is not the arrival of any movement or style but the great diversity of work that’s going on. No matter what one’s curatorial sensibility is, that’s the principle that has to be engaged.”
– Peter Galassi, curator of photography at the Museum of Modern Art, NYC
“The photobook occupies that deep area between the novel and the film.”
– Lewis Baltz
“A photobook is an autonomous art form, comparable with a piece of sculpture, a play, or a film. The photographs lose their own photographic character as things ‘in themselves’ and become parts, translated into printing ink, of a dramatic event called a book.”
– Ralph Prins, photo-historian
